Some 3ºB students volunteered in the XXI edition of Euroscola Contest this year that was devoted to the European Year for Development 2015.

As the European Parliament insisted on the dignity of human beings, this year’s theme is ‘Our World, Our Dignity, Our Future’.

Samaniego’s students were given different presentations by Mrs. Teresa Allepuz (Europe Direct’s Office Representative in Murcia) and Mr. Manuel Pleguezuelo Alonso (General Director for Civic Participation, European Union and External Action’.

They also gave their own presentations to the rest of the students in the school and later that day they held a Solidarity Fair in which all the students in ESO participated. The money raised at the fair was given to ‘Cáritas’.

The whole project was led by the school’s Social Sciences teacher Martín García Gómez and finally classified on 4th position in Murcia.

You can check all the activities by visiting the official blog on the following webpage.

It’s this lovely time of the year again! St. Valentine’s festivity has arrived at the school and we are willing to learn a little bit more about it.

This year, 1ºB and 3ºB students brought different love quotes from films, songs or books. They read them aloud in class and we also discussed them.

1ºB and 2ºB students were shown a video on the origins of this festivity and 2ºB students also performed a role-play activity around this same theme.

4ºB students saw a video about the alarming figures on romantic spending in the USA. Then, we discussed the topic and draw on some final conclusions.
